About LAD’s

Keeping Canadians on The Road
Since 1985

In 1985, a small family business dedicated to outstanding auto servicing opened its doors in south-central Calgary. LAD’s AUTO has been running strong ever since. Our Maintenance-First approach is about keeping your vehicle or fleet in top-working order, and preventing problems that can lead to costly repairs.

Today, we serve a growing list of customers that includes suburban commuters, soccer moms, sport car enthusiasts, truck lovers, and some of Calgary’s largest and most essential fleets. Our team is comprised of qualified technicians and support staff – all dedicated to delivering an exceptional customer experience with every visit.

A Napa Autopro Affiliate

LAD’s has been a member of the NAPA AutoPro network for over 25 years. This allows us to provide warranty-approved service on all makes and models, the assurance of top-quality NAPA auto parts, and warranty protection on all maintenance and repair work we perform.

Meet Our Family

Dave Dansereau is proud to follow in the footsteps of his parents, Larry and Mandy, managing the day-to-day operations of LAD’s AUTO. He is committed to ensuring the business remains family-run and customer-focused. To help him is a dedicated team of five licenced mechanics and two apprentice technicians (some specialize in diagnostics, while the others focus on general repairs), as well as two dedicated service advisors.

The Dansereaus have always worked hard to create a warm, welcoming and supportive environment within their family business. Today, LADs is helping young people to become certified journeymen and to obtain their licence. Dave works directly with the apprenticeship board at SAIT by providing guidance around programs.
